Even though states are lifting the mandatory orders to stay at home and companies are opening their doors again, the Center for Disease Control still recommends facewear if you want to gather in a public space. For athletes and sports enthusiasts, wearing a workout while exercising outdoors can be uncomfortable. To address these concerns, Under Armor has developed a face mask that makes training easier, and college and professional sports teams have already started wearing them during training.
"It is important that our customers and consumers know that we have their backs," said Kyle Blakely, Under Armor Vice President for Materials Innovation, about Forbes. “It is our responsibility at Under Armor to develop the right product for the athlete. We treated this like any other project, but we had to speed it up to get on the market.
"The real goal was to get something that athletes could use because we wanted to be helpful and we wanted to improve them."
The UA sports mask consists of three separate layers and is a revolutionary tool. The primary layer has air pockets that promise better airflow. The second is made of open-cell foam that lets air in, but moisture and sweat are difficult to pass. The last layer is made of cooling fabric to avoid overheating.
Other features include the distinctive UA Iso-Chill material on the inner lining and ear loops that feel cool as long as you wear them. Those who wear glasses will appreciate the malleable bridge of the nose, which prevents the cover from moving while preventing the glasses from fogging. The product also includes a washable, antimicrobial tote bag with a locker label to identify your name or number.
Pre-order the Under Armor sports mask below at a price of $ 30.
